No. 1 Mohammed Siraj is crowned. Josh Hazlewood and Trent Boult are the highest-ranked ODI bowlers in the ICC rankings

As a result, Siraj moves to the top of the ODI bowler rankings with 729 rating points—albeit by a small margin—his lead over Hazlewood is only two rating points.

The fact that India pacer Mohammed Siraj rose to the top of the ICC’s ODI bowlers’ rankings on Wednesday shows how quickly he has progressed in international cricket.

For the first time, Siraj surpassed New Zealand’s Trent Boult and Australia’s Josh Hazlewood as the top-ranked ODI bowler.

Not only has Siraj been dominant over the past year, but his performance in the ODI series against Sri Lanka and New Zealand at home earlier this month has demonstrated how much the right arm has progressed in recent years.

Last year, Paras Mhambrey, the coach of India’s bowling team, asked Siraj to work on some aspects of his game. The extra training the energetic quick has done has paid off.

Siraj led the three-match series with nine wickets against Sri Lanka, and he followed that up with four wickets in the first game of the recently concluded series against New Zealand.

As a result, Siraj moves to the top of the ODI bowler rankings with 729 rating points—albeit by a small margin—his lead over Hazlewood is only two rating points.

After India’s series victory over New Zealand, captain Rohit Sharma heaped praise on Siraj, an emerging pacer.

He’s done incredibly well, and he knows what the team expects of him, according to Rohit.
“To come and swing the ball, take the new ball, and score early wickets. He also has a lot of skill in the middle overs. The captain said, “He improves with each game.

On the most recent list of ODI bowlers, fellow India pacer Mohammed Shami has moved up 11 spots to number 32, and there has been a lot of movement at the top of the batter rankings since the end of India’s home series against the New Zealanders.

Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan, still holds a healthy lead at the top of the ODI batter rankings, but there are now three Indian players within the top 10 who are vying for the highest honor.

After a brilliant double hundred and a century against New Zealand at home, Shubman Gill, the in-form opener, moves up 20 spots to sixth overall.

Gill moves ahead of veteran Virat Kohli, who dropped to seventh after a lackluster series against New Zealand. Rohit, on the other hand, moved up two spots to eighth after scoring a quick hundred against the Kiwis in Indore.
